a thing of beauty...

You might remember in a previous post I said my Royal Albert 1930's Polka Rose mug was on its way? ...It arrived! Check them out here:

www.buyster.com.au Look under dinnerware, then plates/bowls/mugs. This mug feels substantial in the hand, but not heavy :) It's going to be a real treat to use, and I love the scalloped shape. It doesn't show up that well in my pic, but there's a slight fluting, or scalloping all the way around. Yes..that's gold ...22 carat to be exact ;) I just love the polka dots combined with traditional rose floral. Reminds me of that famous designer, Cath Kidston, and her work. Even the packaging is beautiful, making this a great gift idea. Any mugaholics out there like me? What do you think?
